Description ooo 2004-02-12 17:09:19 UTC
When you will use external data from table at websites (HTML pages) then it 
would be a great enhancement if you could select the table by it's title 
<table title=" Links"> instead of just a number (HTML_2) in the 
list of "Available tables/ranges" under "Insert" -> "External data...".  
You can use the URL above for test purposes - the table now named HTML_2 has 
the title " Links".  
In the HTML code it looks like this: 
It would make it much easier to select the correct table if a website or HTML 
page has several tables - and named them correctly. 
Thanks in advance

I can see that the URL for testing I submitted is not on the issue page. So 
here it is:

this is possible. The only problem is that the Title tag is not evaluated but
the id tag is. This is because the id tag should be unique over the document and
for titles there is not such an limitation even if it should.

So we should consider to evaluate also the title tag.

This issue will be evaluated soon. Flags corrected.
Comment 4 ooo 2004-02-13 10:15:35 UTC
If the table HTML-tag has an id use the id.  
Else if the table HTML-tag has a title use the title 
Else use a number. 
The naming convention for the entries in the list could be: Links 
or Links 
instead of just: Links 
The information about using the id for the table should be mentioned in the 
help file.

I forgot: 
Then you could actually use both and not let the other out because you then 
both have the ID and the TITLE.
